Core i7 CPU Block Roundup #1

Thermal Test Results

Now finally some results! First up, the big graph with all my data presented as conveniently as possible.


Specific Pumping Power

<p>Now that we have looked at the plotted results, let's isolate the data into groupings at a specific pumping power. This ignores flowrate and isolates the CPU temperatures at a given pumping power.</p>
<ul>
  <li><b>Full Pumping Power</b>: All three MCP355 pumps are on at full speed--more power than an RD-30 and the definition of overkill for just a CPU loop.</li>
  <li><b>Medium-high Pumping Power</b>: Single MCP355 with Res Top at 12.65V in a simple loop is pretty representative of the amount of flow you can expect in a high-end loop.</li>
  <li><b>Medium-low Pumping Power</b>: Single MCP355 with Res Top at 10V in a simple loop is fairly representative of the amount of flow you can expect from a multi-block loop or a simple loop with a lesser pump.</li>
  <li><b>Low Pumping Power</b>: Single MCP355 with Res Top at 7.65V is fairly representative of the amount of flow you can expect from a loop with lots of restriction or a loop with a pump meant for silence and low flow.</li>
</ul>
